To every thing there is.

leaf

When it rains and I can't see the clouds, the leaves fall like snowflakes, a sky full of gold glitter. And I sweep all day long when they follow us in but I do not mind at all.

Yesterday I had to give my name over the phone and told the gal "Capital P - r- e... um, I'm sorry. I haven't been around another adult for almost a week now." Then I mumbled something about kids and homework. Jeff was gone since Sunday and well, yeah.

Our days are easy. I mean, I had to get a new monthly planner because things need to be written down, there is busy-ness, but when we're free we're free.

And we stretch out our limbs but I still don't think I'll feel here here until our old house finally sells. It's like until then I'm afraid I'll find out this is all not real, and we have to go back. It's a chapter I'd like to come to an end. I wonder if the showings this weekend are "it." I wonder if every showing is but this time, it's a little stronger.

  1. fingers-crossed for you! i can imagine that feeling in the middle not really there, afraid to be *here*. You'll get there, with both feet. Soon. I feel it.

  2. This hits so close to home. I'm always feeling not settled lately. And all I want is to be back home in NE Ohio. But can't. My hubby is gone all month, and well... Yeah. Xoxo

  3. I understand the feelings. Our home has only been on the market two weeks and not a nibble. This whole move thing, for us, happened so fast, its like I'm living in someone else's life or a dream. Sometimes a bad dream. Other times, an out-of-body experience. Weird. Its like home is still home while you have the house...and until it sells, you can't live live. Saying prayers for you (family and the house) and sending lots of hugs.

  4. For a long time after we moved to Valpo, I would still refer to Chicago as home. Like instead of just saying the name of the city, I'd say "home." I'd say things like, "You know how at home..." when I was referring to something in Chicago. It does take a while to wrap your head around the change, but that's okay.

  9. I feel EXACTLY the same way. Like I don't know what to do... plant our feet or get ready to run. Crossing our fingers that our house sells so we can finally start doing what we need to do. Live.

  11. Even though our calendar isn't all that full, our days aren't feeling very free lately. I think maybe we need to just step outside and breathe today.

    p.s. I absolutely love that picture.
